“Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart.”
Salman Rushdie (via lifeofliterature)
So very true. Today has been an especially emotional day. Not a surprise, I brought it upon myself, but it was a day that I just needed to get through, to survive, and then everything starts to look up from there. I’ve used books today to escape - lose myself in imagination and escape. Books are much better than films for this, the images in films can remind you of things you are trying to forget, but the beauty of reading is that the images created are all your own - no-one can impose their own interpretation on you.
The book I’m reading is ‘The Common Lawyer’ by Mark Giminez, set in Texas it’s fairly far removed from my University life. I’ll post a review when I’m finished. Not high quality literature but a decent thriller. And I’ve just finished 3 weeks of law exams, who’s to judge?!
